Please, clarify about reference transaction for sandbox accounts


Dear @MTS_Justin ,

Could you please check if reference transaction are enabled on my sandbox account (the merchant ID is S82PLVD5D33EL)?


I find out that reference transaction are enabled for all new sandbox accounts (
But I see that many people are still asking you enable this access for their sandbox accounts.


In particular in my case I try to authorize payment using order ID and previous transaction ID (as described here and receive 422 code:
  "details": [
      "field": "/payment_source/token/id",
      "value": "2NK78427SL2240406",
      "location": "body",
      "issue": "TOKEN_ID_NOT_FOUND",
      "description": "Specified token was not found. Verify the token and try the request again."
  "message": "The requested action could not be performed, semantically incorrect, or failed business validation.",
  "debug_id": "a8210b0a94b76",
  "links": [
      "href": "",
      "rel": "information_link",
      "method": "GET"


Is it due to reference transaction access are disabled or other reason?


Thank you for you assistance.
